Vienna: Full-Day Vienna Woods Wine Tasting Tour

2. Vienna: Full-Day Vienna Woods Wine Tasting Tour

Lower Austria is the cradle of Austrian viticulture, and this private wine tasting tour is your chance to visit the area's beautiful forests and vineyards of the Thermal Region, just south of Vienna. Take a 30-minute train ride to the heart of the Vienna Woods for a wine-filled day. Summer (April-October) Your summer tour will begin with a hike in the spa town of Baden, which was once a favorite country retreat of Beethoven. From there you will walk along forest trails towards a magnificent elevated viewpoint overlooking the Vienna Basin in all directions. This spot alone is a photographer's dream. Continue the trip by entering the neighboring vineyards, wandering through row upon row of lush green vines. As a reward, you'll take a break among the vines for an open-air wine tasting at a local producer. Winter (November-March) Your train will bring you directly to the vineyards of one of Austria’s oldest wine-making institutions, steeped in middle-age tradition and history. While there, learn about how the monastic orders became wine pioneers of their time and their influence on Austrian viticulture. Sample a glass of local sekt (sparkling wine) to toast to your arrival in the Austrian wine country. The afternoon segment of both the winter and summer tours will be the same. You will continue to the picturesque wine village of Gumpoldskirchen for lunch at a traditional Austrian wine tavern. From there, you'll visit a local winery to enjoy an extensive wine tasting featuring all of the region's specialty wines, and to ask questions to local experts about modern-day wine making. Your tour later concludes with a short train ride back to the city center, just in time for your evening schedule.

Excellent trip. Scenic view, peaceful country side, rich history., knowledgable guide, lots of history briefings on both world wars on the way. It is also good timing to visit during winter time. Definitely worthwhile.

Must do activity while in Austria! Thank you to our guide, Josef, for his service. I appreciate the tour operator as well for doing this tour, though there was only two passengers. You guys are the best!

The guide was very good and he knew so much about Austrian history, I got very amused and I learned a lot. I only regret that we had so few time to enjoy more of Salzburg, I wish I had more time...

It was an amazing trip! Would definitely recommend! Beautiful views, relaxed, detailed history from the host and loads of time to walk around the towns.

Josef did an excellent job and told us many fascinating things about Salzburg.
